    I use roof bars as the car came without rails. If you are unsure as to whether they fit. Try them first

    No roof rails on ebay at the minute, just keep an eye out for some.Try phoning around your local scrappies for a set, you never know your luck.Or try a specialist VX breaker.

    To fit the OE roof rails, you need to drop rthe headlinig to bolt up from inside IIRC.

    Rails

    So that would mean them on all the time as you'd need to lower the lining....so what actually fits in the slots on the roof...is it roof bars, my old vectra used bars without rails is it similar for the zafira...i only use them for 3-4 weeks a year when camping so don't want a permanent fixture

    Thumbs Up rails

    what do you mean roof rails front to back or side to side?

    if they side to side you can buy adjustable ones from halfords or real nice lockable ones from vauxhall which occasionly go on ebay. i like the lockable ones as i have a carbon roof box which could still be nicked by unscrewing the rack stupid me.

    i would try the astra ones first as you have nothing to lose?

    rails

    i seem to be doing a good job of confusing myself never mind anyone else...right try again.

    What are my options for carrying a topbox

    I don't have roof rails ( front to back)
    Do i need rails or can i use roof bars ( side to side) and if so do they fit into the slots on the track that runs along the roof

    I have roof rails on mine so can't see the mounting points, however, I would imagine that you should be able to side to side bars that fit with the correct leg kit.

    Do a search on google, one place I found was car roofracks uk, they have 10% off at the mo, may be worth a look.
